Ingredients

  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 10.5 ounces cream of chicken soup
  • 10 ounces Rotel Diced Tomatoes with Chiles drained
  • 12 ounces Velveeta diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • Cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook spaghetti for 1 minute less than the package states. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water before draining.
  • While the spaghetti is cooking, add the ground beef to a large skillet over medium heat and crumble the meat as it cooks.
  • Drain the grease and season with the taco seasoning. Add 1/4 cup of water (as called for on the taco seasoning), the cream of chicken and tomatoes. Stir well to combine.
  • Add the Velveeta and continue cooking over low heat until the cheese has melted. Stir in 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water to thin the sauce.
  • Pour the cheese sauce over the spaghetti and add to the prepared baking dish.
  • Top with the shredded cheddar.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro before serving.
